RI Weather Today, May 3, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

What’s left of yesterday’s low pressure slowly moves out to sea, with low cloud over breaking up through the morning. We’ll have a short spell of some sunshine in the afternoon before more high cloud cover rolls in with a warm front in the evening.

Afternoon highs reach the upper 50’s bookended by lows in the upper 40’s morning and evening.


John Donnelly was born in Hialeah, Florida and moved back to Rhode Island and settled in Johnston, where he grew up until graduating from Lyndon State College in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. As a child John always wanted to know how air moved, and he ran towards, not away from, thunder and lighting and various other ominous weather phenomena. He returned in 2001 to the old family neighborhood of Elmhurst where the McCabe’s, Donnelly’s, Walker’s and Callan’s have been since after the Civil War.
